their stake in the energy business. energy was once a popular investment on wall street. in 2008, big banks were so involved in the market that banks powered an estimated 2 out of every 5 residential customers. however, lower prices and more regulation following the enron collapse are causing firms to take a step back from the business. recently, federal regulators banned jpmorgan chase from selling electricity for 6 months. it's part of an investigation that the bank manipulated energy prices in some parts of the u.s. the holiday parties are winding down on wall street. several financial firms in new york called off holiday events or scaled back. report say morgan stanely and credit suisse did not sponsor parties. citigroup, deutche bank, barclays and the investment banking unit of bank of america left it up to individual departments to pay out of their own accounts. back in the day, as in before the financial crisis, wall street firms rented out nightclubs and steakhouses in midtown for holiday celebrations. the u.s. government is calling in the national academy of sciences for yet anothe

interested in clean energy. but putting a color on a map detrimental to the people who have been adversely impacted for decades. i as an environmentalist, i am not going to keep quiet. we need added outreach to those areas. and the only way that can be done is when the local people knock at the door. and the people that are comfortable with them, answer a number of questions. which i guarantee you that the staff did not do. now if we have some consultant and we pay them millions of dollars, that's fine. provided we have the empirical data from the right areas to do the right thing. i see you just asking questions in general and not going to what type of quality work has been done. so it's left to y'all. this an enterprise department that generates a lot of money. and you can use your money wisely or waste your money. but i am here to tell you in district 10 and 11, that survey with that map that you have has to be revisited first. and that's what the chair, kind of said after i spoke. and we also need to get some empirical data in district 10 and 11 as to the pollution and contamination. b
